Victoria M. “Vicky” Welsh. Our beautiful mother went to meet our Lord on December 12, 2022. Victoria was born to Louis and Josephine Gajewski on August 6, 1934 in Wausau, Wisconsin. Victoria married Wallace Welsh in October of 1953. He was the love of her life, and upon his death, her heart was broken and never healed. Victoria worked several positions, with her latest being at St. Elizabeth’s Dietary Department. She also donated her time to St. Joseph’s Food Pantry after her retirement. She had many dear friends. Anyone that met her loved her contagious laughter, beautiful smile and great hugs.
